Ionia have been making their own path and developing their own brand of alternative rock full of metal influences. Ionia breathes life to melodic rock with somber and post hardcore style lyrics. Fans of hard rock and metal are bound to find plenty to enjoyment in with their new album Post Cards from the Edge Chapter 1 Delta 32.
Blaise Beyhan was gracious enough to answer a few questions Ignite Music Magazine. We would just like to thank him for taking the time to answer them !
For some that are not familiar with the band, how would you explain it to someone that is first listing to it?
I would simply say that we are a rock band seeking to create genuine music that touches others and connects us all.
How has living in New York influenced your style of music?
Where ever you are and where ever you go leaves its mark on how you create. New York is no exception to this.
How has this new EP, Postcards From The Edge: Chapter 1. Delta 32 differ from your last EP, Musically and/or lyrically?
It’s very much about loss and redemption for us. Those themes lie within every track.
For some that that don’t know about the recording process..and all bands do it differently, how is your recording process of a new album go? Do you write first then music..or visa vera..or do it at the same time?
There are no rules to how we work. We take it moment to moment. I don’t think there should be too many perimeters when it come to creating.
Who or what bands have been a major influence in your music, and who are some of the favorite band to listen to our right now?
So many. Brand New, The 1975, Deftones, Bright Eyes, to name a few.
Are you guys touring now? What is the one band you would be your epic band to tour with?
We are not touring right now. We would love to play with 30 Seconds To Mars.
Here is just a fun question I like to ask..If there was one person you can switch places with..who would that be, and why?
I would switch places with my mother so that my brothers and sisters would still have her in their lives.
Anything new on the horizon that you can tell your fans about that they may not know about?
We have new videos and new music coming soon.
It great to hear that Ionia is working on new music and new videos and we hope to get our hands on the new tune and can wait to see what you have in store for us. Again..we would just like to thank Blaise for answering our questions.
